Alert: Unseasonably Warm Temperatures To Continue In Alabama Through Weekend

THE HOT SUMMER TIME WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL ONCE AGAIN REACH INTO THE UPPER
90S…WITH SEVERAL LOCATIONS LIKELY HITTING 100 DEGREES EACH
DAY…ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTHWEST. HEAT INDEX VALUES DURING
PEAK HEATING HOURS WILL RANGE DURING THE AFTERNOON FROM 98 TO
102 DEGREES ACROSS MUCH OF CENTRAL ALABAMA THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
REMEMBER THESE TEMPERATURES ARE TAKEN IN SHELTERED OR SHADED
LOCATIONS. AREAS WITH LITTLE TO NO SHADE COULD BE AS MUCH AS
10 TO 15 DEGREES WARMER. IF YOU ARE EXPOSED TO THE FULL
SUNSHINE FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD…THE RISK FOR HEAT STRESS
INCREASES.
WITH ELEVATED HEAT STRESS LEVELS…CAUTION IS ADVISED FOR
ANYONE WITH OUTDOOR INTERESTS. TAKE PROPER PRECAUTIONS TO LOWER
YOUR RISK OF HEAT RELATED ILLNESSES. WEAR LIGHT COLORED…LOOSE
FITTING CLOTHING…AND A WIDE BRIMMED HAT. USE A SUNSCREEN OF SPF
15 OR GREATER. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS FROM
OUTDOOR HEAT EXPOSURE. CHECK ON FAMILY AND NEIGHBORS…AND
REMEMBER TO LEAVE PLENTY OF WATER AND SOURCE OF SHADE FOR ANY
OUTDOOR PETS.
